Industry 4.0 Technology Day hosted by EPLAN

25 February 2019

CAE software company EPLAN is hosting the Industry 4.0 Technology Day which is being held at the Limerick Institute of Technology in Ireland on 16th April.

The event aims to raise awareness of the Industry 4.0 concept and will enable attendees to better understand the implications and applications of Industry 4.0 in the workplace. It will also explain how existing – and near future – technologies can contribute to smart factory status.

Commenting on the event, Ken Christie, director of EPLAN UK, said: “We often hear that businesses believe Industry 4.0 to be too complex, but what many fail to understand is that the time-saving, efficient technologies that underpin it are, in reality, within easy reach. It is unfortunate that some manufacturers are adopting only a small percentage of the available technologies, thereby missing out on big opportunities for revenue growth and productivity enhancements. If they are to continue to compete successfully in the global marketplace, it is essential that manufacturers in the Republic of Ireland take up these innovations, as it is widely accepted that Industry 4.0 could lead to a 30% increase in industrial activity”.

Visitors to the Industry 4.0 Technology Day will be able to view innovations and discuss ideas in an exhibition area and also participate in a series of seminars on key topics in breakout rooms. During the seminar sessions, industry leaders will explain how SMEs can harness the technologies made available by smart manufacturing philosophies and how they can best prepare for Industry 4.0.

Other companies exhibiting and/or making presentations at the event will include ABB, Festo, Igus, Omron, Panasonic, Rittal, Phoenix Contact, Schneider Electric, Siemens, SMC, Weidmüller and more.
